I know you guys get this all the time but I am a new Mac user am asking for a recommendation. I purchased a Mac Air this weekend with the 256gb hard drive. I purchased it for my online college and Im going into Network Administration. My courses are going to involve some web development as well as programming. My first class has me using dreamweaver and photoshop. I got the Air for 1099. I am second guessing myself about my purchase, and wondering if I should have went with the Pro with the 750gb Sata drive? Some people have been saying to look long term and that I might regret not having the upgraded model. Do you all feel the Air is sufficient for this type of stuff or should I exchange? Thanks in advance

Thanks. I am probably going to exchange it. I was just sold by how light it is and the battery life, but I dont want to end up wishing I had more at a later time

You might also wish to wait a bit before purchasing a new MacBook Pro. Apple is very close to announcing new models. Return the Air and wait awhile if you can.
